My name is Jordan. I am an investor trying to optimize my work flow by outsourcing some of the research related to my investment strategy.
I am going to send you a list of between 50 - 100 stock symbols. I will submit this list as an excel spreadsheet with a single column of data. For each symbol, you will need to go to 3 websites and enter a total of up to 20 numbers in the spreadsheet. In some cases, there will be error messages or missing data, and in these cases, you can leave the fields blank.
I have followed this procedure several times, and it takes me 3-4 hours to complete.
Assuming I am happy with your work, I will ask you to repeat this project with a new list somewhere between once a week and once a month.
Here is a detailed description of the data I require for each stock. I am using IBM as an example. The URLs will always be the same other than the symbol.
Step 1: Go to: http://www.marketwatch.com/investing/stock/ibm/financials
Step 2: In the EPS (Diluted) row, enter the 5 values from left to right.
Step 3: Go to: http://www.marketwatch.com/investing/stock/ibm/financials/income/quarter
Step 4: In the EPS (Diluted) row, enter the 5 values from left to right.
Step 5: Go to: http://www.marketwatch.com/investing/stock/ibm/financials/balance-sheet
Step 6: In the Intangible Assets row, enter the 5 values from left to right. Type in the number only without the "M" or the "B"
Step 7: In the Total Equity row, enter the 5 values from left to right. Type in the number only without the "M" or the "B"
You should return to me a spreadsheet with a total of 20 values filled in from left to right for each stock.
